HEARTS WOUNDED BY REJECTION


rejection

Mark 12:30-31, And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

WHAT IS REJECTION?  It is when someone makes you feel like you are worthless, unimportant, and they treat you like you are a waste of their time.

Rejection begins as a seed!  Everything that begins in our lives comes as a SEED.

Satan wants that seed to get deep enough that it will start growing roots that reach deep and wide in our lives.

Some have been rejected by your moms or dads, family, friends, spouses, children, job, church (abandonment, cruel words, abuse, deaths, divorce, unfaithfulness, comparisons).  Some even feel that God rejected them because they did not get a prayer answered.

Whatever seed takes root, that is the fruit the tree will produce.

If the seed is rejection, and it takes root, then the tree will produce, “I am not worth it,” “I am not important,” “I am not valuable” thoughts. These thoughts produce the desire to be FAKE so that you are accepted by others.

When you reject yourself because someone else has said you are not valuable, the fruit from the tree will be a bad attitude, anger, bitterness, depression, negativity, judgmentalism, controlling spirit, harshness, no-confidence, rebellion, distrust, escapism, medicating themselves…..

THE SEEDS THAT GROW INTO ROOTS OF REJECTION ARE EVIDENT IN OUR RELATIONSHIPS.

We go into PROTECTIVE MODE so nobody can hurt us again.

MAYBE YOU HAVE SAID THESE STATEMENTS.  IF YOU HAVE, YOU ARE IN PROTECTIVE MODE BECAUSE OF A WOUND.

I’ll never let anyone do this to me again!

They won’t hurt me because I don’t care!

You strike out to hurt before being hurt!

You buy things, or collect animals because they don’t judge or reject you!

Perfectionism. Nobody can meet my expectations.  Isolation.

Manipulation of people & environments!

Medicate through drugs, alcohol, sex….

You always run when you see rejection might happen!

Refusal to become VULNERABLE!

YOU DESERVE TO BE HEALED!  YOU DESERVE TO BE WHOLE!  JESUS PAID THE PRICE FOR YOUR HEALING!

I’M LEAVING THE CHURCH Because I was HURT


leavechurch

SADLY I HAVE HEARD THIS STATEMENT MORE THAN THE NUMBER OF FINGERS AND TOES PUT TOGETHER.

I have watched people leave hurt and when they march off they usually do not make it spiritually, or they become stagnated and stop moving forward with the passion.

SHOULD YOU LEAVE THE CHURCH BECAUSE SOMEONE HURT YOUR FEELINGS?

I have some good thoughts for you today.  The good thing is that you were hurt.  WHAT?  It means that you opened your heart to love.  If you never love you can never be hurt.

BUT

What many do is when they get hurt they recoil back into protection mode and they begin to close their hearts so they will not be hurt again.  THIS EQUALS DEATH IN YOUR LIFE WITH JESUS AND DEATH IN ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFE.  

When you are hurt and you do not forgive then you are planting for bitterness.  THE SEED OF UNFORGIVENESS GROWS UP INTO A HARVEST OF BITTERNESS.

SO WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE HURT?

  1. Make a decision that NOBODY and no OFFENSE is going to disconnect me from my destiny!  
  2. FORGIVE!  Pastor if I forgive, how do I forget?  You cannot forget, you are a human, but you can decided to love them even if you do not like them.  You know you have not forgiven them if your guts turn every time you see them.  Sometimes it takes time to be healed of the wound and that is ok.  CHOOSE FORGIVENESS.
  3. NEVER SHRINK BACK!  Your flesh and the devil would love to get you isolated so they can devour your love for Jesus and destroy your destiny.  MOVE FORWARD AND NEVER MOVE BACK!  SIT UPFRONT AND GRAB THE ALTAR FOR WORSHIP.

If you cannot be in the same church they are in then how will you be in the same heaven?

1 John 3:15, Anyone who hates another brother or sister is really a murderer at heart. And you know that murderers don’t have eternal life within them.

Matt. 6:15, But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.

NEVER BE A RUNNER!  NEVER LEAVE WHEN YOU ARE HURT.

OH MY GOODNESS….I AM ALL TWISTED UP INSIDE!

My guts, my heart, I hurt so bad inside.

Are you dealing with a BROKEN HEART?  

Has someone WOUNDED you?

TODAY I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT JESUS DID NOT DIE JUST TO GET YOU TO HEAVEN, BUT HE DIED THAT YOU WOULD BE HEALTHY AND WHOLE IN YOUR ENTIRETY (spirit, soul, and body).

Ps. 147:3, He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.

Luke 4:18, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

JESUS DOES NOT WANT YOU TO BE THE WALKING WOUNDED, HE NEEDS YOU HEALTHY SO YOU CAN FULFILL YOUR DESTINY!

Lied about, abandoned, betrayed, abused, no matter what the wound Jesus desires and will heal you if you ask.

HE DOES NOT HAVE WOUNDS FOR YOU, HE HAS HEALTH FOR YOU!

3 John 2, Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

PROSPER IN YOUR SOUL BY BEING HEALED FROM THAT WOUND.

You cannot medicate a wound away!

You cannot hide the wound and it will disappear!

You MUST allow the healer of the broken-hearted to come and do a supernatural healing where the doctors scalpel cannot cut.

JESUS TODAY WE RECEIVE HEALING IN OUR HEARTS.  WE THANK YOU FOR TOUCHING US AND RESTORING OUR LIVES BY MAKING US WHOLE PEOPLE INSIDE AND OUT!

Thank Him today for your wholeness!

BE HEALED FROM YOUR BROKEN-HEART!

REJECTION – 2 Saddest Verses in the BIBLE!


rejection

WE HAVE ALL EXPERIENCED THE PAIN OF REJECTION…….EVEN THE KING OF HEAVEN!

Getting that Judas kiss means that it had to be rejection or a wound from someone close.  It had to be a person who you lowered your guard with, opened your heart toward and trusted.  You gave, loved and were faithful to their needs not only your own.

THEN….. THEY TURNED!

THEY REPELLED YOU!

THEY REJECTED YOU FOR NO REASON!  

The only thing you ever did was love them.  You were there when they needed you.  WHY?  WHAT HAPPENED?

There are some things that will just never make sense, but know this, our King experienced it too.

Gen. 3:8-9, And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”

1 Sam 8:7,  And the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.

NOT THAT IT TAKES THE PAIN AWAY, BUT KNOW THAT YOUR KING HAS EXPERIENCED THAT WOUND OF REJECTION FROM US.  HE HAS ONLY EVER DONE GOOD TOWARD US.  HE HAS ONLY EVER TRULY LOVED US AND SENT HIS SON TO DIE TO RESTORE US.

Today, know that there is healing for your brokenness.  The King will heal your heart today!

Ps. 147:3, He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.

Luke 4:18, The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

KING JESUS WILL NEVER REJECT YOU, SO PLEASE DO NOT REJECT HIM!
